The Inner Monologue

unnamedHell exists, and it is active addiction.*

The Devil exists, and he is self-rationalization.*

Does God exist?*

Still working that bit out.

*Disclaimer: experience varies from person to person; not all humans may view said concepts through the same lens…

…and that’s OK (looking at you, Indiana).

Who knew that people who are not you had, y’know, different beliefs and understandings than you do?  Saw & felt the world a little differently than you?  Sheesh, what a concept!  I mean we’re still struggling–hard–as a society, to lock down such tenets of life as “acceptance” and “tolerance.”

I’m working on minimizing my own hypocrisies and egotistical jibberjabber.  I get plenty heated, plenty often.  Best practice for me, in those moments?  Think about why I’m feeling that way; what led me to that point; if I’m actually operating with a hidden agenda; if I’m willing to admit it, if I am; and, if it’s worth lashing out over.

So that is a mindful inner monologue.  The voice in my head absolutely did not always care to review those things; this is all personal work, development, and goal-setting.

Broader context: everyone around you, all the time, everywhere…is trying to make sense of their own inner monologue.  Some people have an easier go of it than others; some people are better-practiced.  The mistake is believing that your own self-worth is any less, in light of the fact that those people who “have it easier” do exist (and alternately, a huge mistake on their part if they think so highly of themselves for it).

Find your path; walk it.  Easier said than done?  Keep walking until you do find it, because that’s the only way: how will you ever arrive to your destination if you give up on your journey?
